Subject Re: assembly: ITs failing: container-descriptors\custom-containerDescriptorHandler
Date Thu, 26 Mar 2009 13:42:37 GMT
This is probably not a well-documented feature yet, as it's fairly new 
and we've been working out the kinks. Container-descriptor handlers 
aggregate content from things like components.xml, etc. in an 
intelligent way, rather than allowing one jar's descriptor to overwrite 
another's. The descriptor handlers are Plexus components, whose 
role-hint is entered in the section you mention below. The assembly 
plugin then looks up the specific handlers for use when it encounters 
references to them in the assembly descriptor.

What is the specific error you're seeing?
